Re: Intermountain Erie PS-1 84000
The diagram sht for C&O 2990-2999, last revised in 1968 (vs. drwg 1955, no revisions for the Erie 84000 sht) for these 1954 built cars has the following note --toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
PULLMAN CUSHION UNDERFRAME - Rubber Cushion Gear - 8" Travel
Also notes APEX TRI-LOK running board & brake step (might have been an upgrade)
Also notes a " 10" channel center sill 28.3 # per Ft. Pullman Cushion
So get you CBCs out and check out END-OF-CAR Cushioning systems and see what you have to add. I notes standard Pullman underframe.

Note, these Erie cars need new underframes since they had the PS cushion
underframe. I've held off on building any of these small lots, until I can
find an underframe drawing. I've never found out how PS persuaded these
roads to try the cars with cushion underframes. Roads that had these cars
May have been others.
